Because your health and safety, and that of other attendees and exhibitors, is our primary priority, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 SME Minnesota Conference scheduled for April 6-8, 2020.

We did not take this decision lightly. The MN planning committee and SME meetings team thoughtfully and responsibly determined this to be the best course of action based on all the available options, especially in light of corporate travel restrictions, and the ongoing escalation of the virus.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our customer service department at customerservice@smenet.org or 303-948-4200. See you next year and please stay safe.
